All UFO sightings are the result of drunken aliens screwing around.

The government wants us to believe otherwise.

I believe that Apple has conspired with the government to spy on you with iPhones.

Think about it, it has two cameras, a mic and a GPS. No matter which side you put down there's a camera facing up now.

Apple admitted that the phone was programmed to relay user information to Apple, part of a marketing research thing that you agree to involuntarily if you want to activate the phone. But is that all it really does?

And before you start calling me a crackpot I know this guy who said that the reason we didn't go back to the moon was because the reptilians living there told us never to come back or there would be a war and another guy said 9/11 was orchestrated by Alcoholics Anonymous because they used American Airlines planes, so the last thing you'd see is the AA on the tail wing.

**SIGH**
Lets deconstruct your argument.

1. Apple doesn't need to conspire with the government, they can do whatever they want so long as it doesn't break any laws. Since privacy is one of the biggest grey areas with current technologies, they can take your data (location, web history, etc.) without any government sanctions. If someone were to make a case about violated rights then apple may have to change, but for now they 'own' everyone's personal information and are free to do what they wish with it. If anyone actually reads the end user agreement or whatever, they will state exactly what they do with it. If they don't, then you can make a case against them.
2. Many software programs relay user information back to HQ. It is used for research and data mining (an enormous field btw). Anything connected to the internet or satellites 99% of the time relays user information and program usage. What do they do with all your info? It heavily, depends but this information is normally used to 'define' user types and then study them. They don't care about you personally (such as name, etc.) but merely what KIND of person you are so they can do various things to make money (targeted advertising, HCI tweaks, statistical analysis).
3. Many SMART phones have dual cameras because 1 is used for camera/camcorder mode and the other is used for face to face conferencing. The camcorder/camera phone is larger and has better specs than the front-ward facing camera. The way cameras work, they need to focus and since many are auto-focus nowadays, if they really were watching through the cameras, then the phone would burn battery life fast and generate much more heat than normal, not to mention you would see the camera changing focus. You need to think from a business perspective. Millions of dollars would need to be spent on hardware for storing this data, data miners, analysts, network maintenance workers, etc. And for what purpose? so they can see what person x is doing? They wouldn't, and they don't do that because it is hemorrhaging money out of their pocket when they just want more money for themselves (most execs have no qualms screwing their businesses or the public so long as it makes them money)

Side note, why are people scared that they have no electronic privacy?

99% of all conspiracies are lies. I just believe in the 1% that aren't.

Spoken like a true iPhone owner.

Anyway, I'd be more worried about the moon reptilians.

Been there done that, it was a really good series. I think it was more about hallucinations rather than conspiracies. But then again, conspiracies could just be ideas of people hallucinating.
Could jay-z and beyonce be blessed with a devil child?
